Expressive Arts Therapy is a natural fit for children and teens. Research has shown how arts based and play based therapeutic practices with this range of ages can be of huge benefit, meeting young people where they are and using language (art and play) that they are comfortable with.
Additionally, I come from a background as a music educator with over 12 years experience working with children and youth with expression, play,
connection, and creativity.
My specific training and background are especially beneficial to:
Children and youth experiencing and reacting to big changes (move, divorce, family disruption)
Children and youth experiencing grief due to loss
Children and youth experiencing anxiety or depression
Children and youth who are experiencing volatile or difficult relationships with others or with themselves
Children and youth who have experienced trauma

you and/or your child or teen.
